Welcome to Climate Mama


You are a mother, a father, a grandparent, an uncle, an aunt, a teacher or a child at heart. When you hear the Native American saying, “We don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children”, it makes you stop for a moment and think. You love nature, travel, adventure and believing in a world that is special and unique. Climate change and global warming are words that alarm you, that often seem too big to get your arms around. You care about what’s happening to the world and notice small changes in your own life that seem to point in the direction of a threatened environment. But you wonder if these changes are real, and if they are you can’t imagine what you can do to help change what is happening.

We would like to introduce you to some amazing individuals, Climate Mamas and Papas who are making a difference, who are, through their daily lives, affecting the lives of all of us.

The Climate Reality Project employs cutting-edge communications and grassroots engagement tools to break the dam of inaction and raise the profile of the climate crisis to its proper state of urgency. With a Global movement of more than 5 million strong and a grassroots network of more than 6000 Climate Leaders trained by Al Gore, the Climate Reality Movement stands up to denial, presses for solutions and spreads the truth about climate change to empower leaders to solve the climate crisis. Climate Reality is leading the way and helping us find and hold onto Climate Hope!

May 24th, 2016 was the 10th Anniversary of the release of the film, An Inconvenient Truth. The film was the impetus for the creation of The Climate Reality Project and an awakening to so many about the depth and breadth of the climate crisis - including our Climate Mama. Do you remember the first time you watched that film? Watch it again or watch it for the first time. Share it with the kids in your life.
